30 Days of Style: Day 12

Failed didn’t I haha, I literally didn’t get dressed yesterday all day. I had loads of house chores to do and we put the Christmas tree up, I didn’t think you would want to see my No-Makeup face in a dressing gown haha!

Anyway, onwards and upwards! Today was all black everything, my boyfriend told me I looked like I was going to a funeral….what do men know haha! My quilted leather skirt is from Topshop, last year, as is my high neck tank top. Don’t know how I feel about this little number to be honest, I think my face is too chubby for high neck’s haha! It’s only the second time I have worn it…I’ve had it about a year haha! If these are your thing, it’s from Topshop, I’m pretty sure I have seen similar ones on the website this year if your on the look out.

Today we went to a cute little 1940’s Christmas market. For a foodie like my boyfriend it was heaven, from Polish hot dogs to Kangaroo stir fry to pulled pork Foccacia, this place had everything. I went for the pulled pork Foccacia- gorgeous, Nickie had a smoked Hot Dog and later had a chicken burrito, I assume the burrito was amazing as he didn’t stop going on about if while he was eating it haha! We both got a cake to take home, mine is above and I’ve just devoured it- Triple chocolate brownie with Hot Custard, Yum! Nickie got a toffee brownie I think which is still on the worktop waiting to me eaten.

We called at our local Garden Centre on the way home for a nosy at the Christmas stuff…..walked out later with 3 bags of Christmas decorations for our sideboard haha!! It does look lovely and festive now though 🙂

Hope you enjoyed 🙂

30 Days of Style: Day 8

Day 8, I feel like I have been posting these forever haha!

This morning was an early one, hence the hair thrown up haha, well that and it was hair wash day. It’s been soooo cold outside recently, I’m always sat at my desk shivering so decided to dig out a winter warmer today. This jumper is a ribbed knit, quite thick and the perfect fit; not too snug or too loose. Jumpers can often drown me as I’m only short, or can make me look quite…..butch haha, that might be mind over matter but there’s something about jumpers I find a bit frumpy haha! That been said I really like this one, I got it last year from Primark, I think by memory it was about £15ish! Bargain!

My skirt is from Topshop (surprise, surprise) I love the colours in this, it looks lovely in summer with a cami tucked in, but for now it’s doing me just fine with black tights 🙂

My boots are my old faithful cut outs from River Island, I will be sad when I have to say goodbye to these, they are the comfiest, easiest thing to wear with any outfit but I think they have probably seen better days now to be honest.

We went to see The Hunger Games this evening, I wasn’t overly impressed to be honest, I found it dragged quite a bit and took a while to get going, have you been to see it?

30 Days of Style: Day 7

The more I upload these posts, the more I realise what a limited shopper I am haha! My clothes are always predictably from Topshop, Zara or River Island, maybe it’s time to spread my shopping wings….

Inevitably my outfit today is as above, Topshop Joni Jeans, in petite! Perfect figure hugging jeans, they sit just nicely above my ankle too 🙂 I think the shade I bought have sold out, but I found some similar below.

My Peter Pan style blouse is from Zara in the summer sale. I love the fit of this blouse, a lot of collars are too restrictive on me, I don’t like them tight around my neck, and this is perfect, I think I actually bought the wrong size but I much prefer a loose fitting top so win win for me 🙂 It also had a built in necklace, 3 dainty gold chains which adds a little something different to an otherwise plain Jane blouse.

Finally, I teamed my outfit with my Zara heeled boots, which I’ve posted in previous blogs. I found the link below for anyone who wants a better look.

30 Days of Style: Day 4

image image image image image

After yesterday’s fail I was certain to make sure my pictures had saved this morning, success!

Today’s post is simple with a pop of colour. These Topshop Leigh jeans are the staple of my wardrobe, they go with literally anything and fit like a glove. I don’t think I own any other brand of jeans but Topshop, they fit my leg length and waist perfectly, no turn overs or baggy knees for me please 🙂

I dressed my jeans with a simple white, cross over shirt from River Island (http://www.riverisland.com/women/tops/blouses–shirts/Cream-wrap-blouse-658701) I love this style of shirt, a V-neck suits me much more than any other style of top, and these are so effortless and comfy. My pop of colour comes in the form of this Zara blazer. I got this last summer from the TRF section for £60, it looks great in summer with light denim shorts or a midi dress 🙂

My cream Tartan scarf is another Primark bargain, same as yesterday’s but just a different colour. I have another one of these in a red shade too haha #addicted! I did get these scarfs last year but there’s always some good scarfs in Primark. My final item are these cute pixie like tan boots! I almost always wear black boots, but it’s nice to switch things up sometimes 🙂

Hope you enjoyed, have a nice weekend 🙂
